The County of San Diego, Health and Human Services Agency, Child Welfare Services (CWS) invites qualified individuals to apply for the position of: DEPUTY DIRECTOR, DEPARTMENTAL OPERATIONS-CHILD WELFARE SERVICES

The County of San Diego is looking for a dynamic individual to assist in leading and directing the planning and operations of Child Welfare Services (CWS). Under the administration of the Director and Assistant Director of Child Welfare Services, this executive management position will assist in leading and directing the planning and operations of Child Welfare Services. Child Welfare Services (CWS) strives to ensure every child grows up safe and nurtured. CWS is committed to excellence in the delivery of culturally competent, family-centered and child-focused protective services. San Diego has many resources and services available to children and their families/caregivers; however, there are often challenges accessing and engaging in these services. Sometimes when families are unable to access supports, it can increase risk factors for maltreatment and lead to involvement with Child Welfare Services. Our vision is to increase child and family wellbeing and decrease the number of children entering the Child Welfare System by working with San Diego County health, education, legal and social service agencies to support children and their families/caregivers to access services and promote protective factors. CWS works to improve the alignment of services between cross-sector partners to better understand and respond to family needs. The cumulative impact of these efforts will contribute to a more connected and comprehensive service provider system in San Diego County, increased connection to resources for children and the adults who care for them, and ultimately decrease rates of child maltreatment.
